HELENSBURGH Heritage Trust has a new director.

Alasdair W.Jamison, who is 62 and moved to Helensburgh in 2012 with his wife Anne, has been co-opted on to the board.

He was born in Paisley in 1951 and brought up in Renfrew. His family moved to Basingstoke in 1967 after which he spent his entire working life, and a little longer, in England — 20 years in Hampshire and London, then 25 in East Lancahire.

He graduated from London University with a B.Sc.Econ., then spent 35 years teaching history, economics and politics up to A Level. After teaching at five different schools he was Head of an 11-19 High School and Deputy Head of a Sixth Form College, and also served as a Borough Councillor for a few years in Basingstoke.

Alasdair said: "I have always had an active interest in history and politics, and also have an active, layman's interest in archaeology.

"I've had a few, small pieces published in various, pretty obscure, history-related publications and have delivered a number of lectures to several branches of The Historical Association in parts of North West England. I am  currently an active member of the North Clyde Archaeological Society."
